Police say a veterinarian had to put down nine calves at a dairy farm after they were attacked by two dogs on April 19th.

According to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, they received a call around 6:22 a.m. on Thursday regarding two dogs attacking several Holstein calves.

When a deputy arrived at the farm located on Miller Lane the dogs had already left. A veterinarian also responded to the scene and had to put nine calves down as a result of their injuries from the attack.

The sheriff’s office conducted a search in the area for the owner of the dogs and several neighbors and businesses were contacted.

Several hours later the owner of the dogs was found and he was charged with dogs running at large, untagged dogs and dogs causing injury-without notice. The man is in contact with the owner of the calves and agreed to take care of the damages caused from the dogs.
